So, I was looking over my “finished” first draft of “The Woodsman,” and realized that, frankly, it’s awful. I did not enjoy reading it. The first half of it was very good, I thought, and did a good job of developing the characters who will die later in the story. The second half, however, because it was a little bit rushed, was choppy, didn’t flow, and came out of nowhere.
As such, my main project for the months of April and May will be, I think, to revisit this story and fix the second half. I have outlined it and given it a much better shape than it has now, I think; and hopefully it will be scarier. I’m excited to look it over, so next month be prepared for updates on it!
Also, I wish to take this time to address #writemotivation. I am failing utterly at the moment, due to pressures (I can’t write under stress) and university work hitting me really hard in the last week before spring break. I hope to get a lot of writing done over said spring break, but for now consider me behind; I’ve hardly written anything at all in Tal’kan. Here’s to catching up soon, though!
Now, to catch some much-needed sleep!
